SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9
Hard to believe today would have been John Lennon's 76th birthday. Terri Hemmert featured him on her Breakfast With the Beatles show on Chicago's WXRT this morning.
I was able to take care of some yard waste in the burn pile as we can only do that on weekends in October, November, April and May. I produce quite a bit of yard waste.
Liz and I went to the Squaw Bar in Ingleside, Illinois, on Rollins Road, and watched the first half of the Bears game with "The Usual Suspects." It is nice this time of year as we can have the viewing outside in their pavilion.
At half, we drove over to McHenry, Illinois, to take part in their Flavors of Fall Taste Fest where 18 places offer "tastes" of food for $1 to $3 a taste. We always have a great time doing this and made it to 7 of them. We started at the Polish Legion of American Veterans and split smoked sausage and cabbage rolls.
